Batman Arkham Knight

Nightwing and The Dark Knight Tumbler Coming to Batman: Arkham Knight This September

batman arkham knight nightwing dlc

If you've been waiting to play Batman: Arkham Knight with the new Burton Batmobile, and fly around in the Keaton suit, we've got some good news for you; it's out today. As has been previously disclosed, you'll be able to play with the classic 1989 Batmobile through two race tracks inspired by Batman and Batman Returns. What's more, Rocksteady has clarified the Batmobile's usage outside of these specific race tracks. You will be able to drive around the streets of Gotham with this version of the vehicle... provided you've already eliminated all the tanks on every island.

That's right, kids; the 1989 Batmobile can only be used if the streets are barren of the Arkham Knight's tanks which patrol every street and sideroad for almost the entire game. If you were hoping to whip around in New Game+ with the DLC car, that's just too bad. You'll still have to destroy all the tanks, and finish off the drone tank segment for the Knightfall protocol first. Coooooooool. Maybe the newly announced The Dark Knight Tumbler will actually fare a bit better in that department.

DC Collectibles Announces New, Spoilery Batman: Arkham Knight Figures

Two new Batman: Arkham Knight figures are on the way from DC Collectibles. After the success DC Collectibles has had with the action figure lines based on previous Arkham games, it's not all that surprising to learn the series will continue beyond those pieces already announced and released this year. It's also not surprising that one of the figures will be a Batman variant to go along with the standard armored version that launched in the first series.

Like the Red Hood figure that came out a month ago, the Battle Damaged Batman will only be available at GameStop. Normally, I'm not a big fan of retailer-exclusive figures, but as this is mostly just a repaint/variant of the figure widely available, it's not all that upsetting. According to Gamespot, the November-shipping figure will include a line launcher and batarang, and 25 points of articulation, for $25. The sculpt, by Gentle Giant, is quite detailed for the scale and size, and the distressing to the suit to replicate the damage done by the Scarecrow's goons gives the Dark Knight some nice weathering.

It’s a Bat-blast From the Bat-past as the 1989 Batmobile Comes to Batman: Arkham Knight

Warner Bros.

After all these years, the 1989 Batman film and its 1992 sequel, Batman Returns, still hold a special place in many a comic fan's hearts. Though there have been numerous Bat-films over the years, including those by Christopher Nolan, they still aren't talked about with the same reverence as Tim Burton's iconic adaptations. That's why, against my better judgment, I was actually excited for the planned 1989 Batman downloadable content for Batman: Arkham Knight. There's just something about those films that overrides my common sense.

The next Arkham Knight content drop, due out later this month (for season pass holders), brings the Corvette-inspired Batmobile to the game along with a new Keaton-era Batsuit skin for Batman. There are also two race tracks coming, one of which was shown off in the newest Arkham Insider video from the development team. Inspired by both films, the race track teased in the latest video takes you through the streets of Gotham during Joker's parade, the snow-covered zoo and through the underground lair of the Penguin himself.

Alfred Takes a Break From Cleaning the Batcave to Clean Up Gotham’s Streets in Arkham Knight Mod

None of Batman's closest friends and family have been with him nearly as long as dutiful butler Alfred Pennyworth. While the character has seen some action in the comics and animated ventures of the Dark Knight, the video game versions of the loyal servant have largely been portrayed as just that. Thankfully, one devoted Pennyworth fan set forth to buck that trend, and give the over-qualified major-domo a chance to shine.

Though the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight is still rather borked, the time without a properly functioning game has given PC players a chance to fool around with the game's files. After learning how to insert non-playable characters into the fold, Batman Arkham Videos (via Polygon) was able to get Alfred himself in place of Bruce Wayne for much of Arkham Knight's action. "I've tried to edit some files in Batman: Arkham Knight and finally managed to play as Alfred Pennyworth," said the YouTube description. "His moveset is very limited, he cannot perform counter-attacks, environmental takedowns or dual takedowns, but he can still kick plenty of ass."

The Inevitable Batman: Arkham Knight Funko Pops Have Arrived

There comes a time for every single character of every single movie, video game, television show, sport, galactic council, and trading card series when it must succumb to the Pop transformation. This September, that time comes for Batman: Arkham Knight, the latest and final game in Rockstead Studios' Batman: Arkham trilogy.

The reveal comes courtesy of IGN, which debuted the four figures in the upcoming line exclusively this week. Previously, Funko released figures based on the Batman: Arkham Asylum incarnations of Batman, Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Killer Croc, but hasn't touched either Arkham City or Arkham Origins as of yet. That's okay though, as the most recent Batman game will likely draw more water from fans.

Batman: Arkham Knight PC Version Fixes Not Coming Until Fall

Batman Arkham Knight Gameplay Trailer
Rocksteady Studios

Though the release of Batman: Arkham Knight went rather smoothly for Rocksteady Studios on console platforms, the PC release has been an absolute hot mess since last month. The good news is Rocksteady has taken up the reins from Iron Galaxy, the studio who handled the PC port, to fix up all the issues the computer version has had since it dropped. The bad news is those fixes are likely still months away.

According to a leaked email from EB Games Australia (obtained by Kotaku AU), Warner Bros. has informed the retailer that a patch won't be ready until spring. At first that sounds incredibly damning, but Australian spring begins in September, which means we're looking at six to eight weeks for the update to arrive at the earliest. Given how much work needs to be done, expecting that patch to arrive at 12:01AM on Sept. 1 might be a tad unrealistic.

Tim Burton’s Batman and Batmobile Come to Arkham Knight in New DLC

Rocksteady Studios
Rocksteady Studios

The release of Rocksteady Studios' Batman: Arkham Knight has come and gone, and left a divisive trail in the Batmobile's wake. Whether you found the missions focused on the tank-like Batmobile tedious or thought the inclusion of Batman's iconic ride was a brilliant gamble on Rocksteady's part, the developer is still planning on supporting the game with even more Batmobile goodies. While the Batgirl story DLC is dropping this month (this week for Season Pass holders, next week for everyone else), Rocksteady has teased the next batch of add-ons with some new images.

Where the Batgirl missions will be handled by Arkham Origins studio WB Montreal, the remaining content will be handled exclusively by Rocksteady. We know the next six months of DLC will introduce new villains, skins, challenge maps, race tracks, Batmobile models and story missions, but we know little details about what that means. For all we know, the only story missions will be the Batgirl content arriving this week, and the remainder just be different skins, Batmobiles and race tracks. Case in point, the upcoming August drop, which features seven new skins, and the classic Tim Burton era Batmobile.

All the DC Collectibles We’re Allowed to Show You From SDCC 15

All the DC Collectibles We're Allowed to Show You From SDCC 15

DC Collectibles kicked off San Diego Comic-Con 2015 with a preview event highlighting many of the bigger figures and series we'll be seeing over the course of the next 12 months. From continued support for the Icons and TV series lines to new Designer Series figures and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice pieces, there's a little bit of something for everyone in DC Collectibles' plans.

As cool as it was to see many of the new items on hand, the stars of the show were the characters getting the Darwyn Cooke touch as part of his Designer wave. Cooke's long been a favorite of mine, and his New Frontier figures from way back when are still some of the most stylish in my collection. Now that he's adding new takes on Batman, Supergirl, Adam Strange and Harley Quinn, I couldn't be happier. Combined with the expansion of the Batman: The Animated Series line to more obscure characters, 2015 and 2016 are shaping up to be a good time for clean, simple designs.

Let’s Not Get Too Excited About These Superman Game Rumors Just Yet

DC Comics
DC Comics

Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Knight has only been out for a few weeks, and already we've got rumors and reports about what's next for DC Comics' heroes in the video game world. While there have been reports about a Justice League or Superman game for almost as long as the Batman: Arkham series has been successful, nothing substantial has ever turned up. A few different developers not named Rocksteady tried their hands at Superman and Flash games for the previous generation, but those never saw the light of day, leaving us with Batman: Arkham as the only non-MMO console experience.

Now, just days before San Diego Comic-Con is set to kick off, new rumors have surfaced that a Superman game is actually in the works... from someone. Maybe. That's part of the problem with the rumor mill; it's just too easy to fake things these days. Keeping that in mind, let's take a look at this purported leak and see if there's any possible truth to the idea that there's a new Superman game currently in development.
